Speaking exclusively to Newsexplorersng.com on the composition of his new cabinet, Apatira disclosed that quality representation and excellent leadership know no ethnic coloration or tribal sentiment.
According to him, “We are not beclouded by sentiment neither are we biased in our selection of quality representation. This informs the calibre of people in our cabinet.

We have been on our toes providing excellent services to the good people of Itire-ikate LCDA and with this appointment, I can assure you residents of the district are in for better days ahead in terms of infrastructure and quality leadership. That I can assure you.”
